Many of Washington’s claims about Iran’s weapons of mass destruction seem to have originated with the Mojahedin-e Khalq
Payvand.com In May 2003, the US accused Iran of producing WMD, including Nuclear weapons. Many of Washington’s claims about Iran’s weapons of mass destruction seem to have originated with the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MKO), based in Iraq and formerly allied with Saddam Hussein, and its civilian front organization, the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The MKO, whose numerous attacks killing Iranian civilians earned it a spot on the State Department list of terrorist organizations, was briefly disarmed by the US in early May, but has apparently been allowed to maintain its presence in Iraq. A battle over the MKO’s future is certainly going on inside the administration. Pro-Israel commentators Daniel Pipes and Patrick Clawson, perhaps reflecting the Pentagon hawks’ point of view, argue that it is “silly to call the MKO terrorists” because they attack Iranian targets, putting them on the same side as the US. Clawson and Pipes call for the MKO to be removed from the terrorist list, rearmed and used to intimidate the Iranian regime, uncover Iranian infiltrators and agents in Iraq, and provide otherwise elusive “intelligence” on Iran. Through its front in Washington, the MKO has obliged this confidence by charging that 14,000 troops and 2,000 clerics in civilian clothes have infiltrated Iraq from Iran, that Iran has chemical and biological weapons and that Iran is developing nuclear capabilities in two undeclared facilities west of Tehran. Some of these claims may be true, but to date no convincing evidence has surfaced.
